Almost everybody has depression of some type or another. Sometimes depression is linked to a childhood trauma and sometimes it comes from a recent traumatic event. No matter where it comes from, it can affect your mood, your thinking and your behavior. Because I have learned to deal with my own depression, I can help you deal with yours. I use a variety of modalities to work with you and get you out of your depression so that you can function better in your personal life and your career.

This is a broad broad category. There are as many things that people call depression, and as many kinds of depressed people, as there are shades of color. The first step is to rule out physical problems – there are several that masquerade as depression – and then to rule out the simple solutions. Any good self-help book or website can give you advice on coping with the inertia that is so problematic in depression. If those are not helping enough, it is time for a careful assessment of your particular brand of what you might be calling depression. It can involve any mixture of anger, resentment, internal pressure, fear, and more. How we handle all that depends on what we find

Depression is a feeling that can feel incredibly heavy to hold. Sometimes we experience challenging life events that leave us feeling much sadness, grief, inner pain and lack of joy, which interfere with our daily functioning. That is called depression. With Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (challenging unhelpful thoughts) and psychodynamic modalities, I can help you work through that sadness, heaviness and pain, so that you may begin the journey of healing work. This is the first step towards holding the sadness, addressing yourself in a safe space so we can slowly help you process and shift to start feeling lighter and start seeing the sunshine and tasting the small joys in everyday life.

Depression is often the illness hiding in plain sight. It’s difficult to get help as depression has the ability to drain you of your will and sense of agency. I work with people suffering with moderate to severe depression. My approach is to find out what is happening now in your life that is causing you distress, your response to it, and also recognize any repetitions of events, relationships or behaviors which may be pulling you down. I work both short and long term. Symptom relief is the immediate goal, whereas a longer-term goal may be to identify any underlying issues triggering the depression.

If depression is keeping you from feeling that you're in the swing of things, and limiting your life potential and your relationships, psychotherapy can make the difference. I balance treatment of the "here and now "with an understanding of the deeper sources of your condition, based on your history and present circumstances of your life. I believe that when we face it together, on a consistent basis, we can help to alleviate some of your most severe manifestations, and enable you to begin to see positive results in your everyday experience.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Depression is a life challenge that is shared by many of us and treated in a variety of ways. Letting go of self blame and regret may be your need. Examining past history and increasing or altering perspective about how this affects your self worth may bring relief. Addressing present thought patterns and how they relate to mood and behavior is practical and beneficial. But, receiving consistent support by a trained, compassionate and dedicated professional who will remain by your side through attempts to change may be the most important and positive step toward relieving depression and that is what I bring to our sessions.

Depression can take many forms, and people often attach a stigma to the word itself. Everyone experiences depression in one form or another, at some point in their life, and it is part of being human. Depression manifests itself in a wide variety of symptoms, including, but not limited to sleeplessness, sleeping too much, fatigue, irritability, lack of motivation, self-isolation, anger, etc. I find the best way to treat depression is by working together to find the underlying causes. Because some of the symptoms of depression, such as despair and hopeless, can get in the way of treatment, it's important to be patient with the process and yourself.

Ariella Soffer, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical PhD Psychologist

Within driving distance of Highlands

Depression can create feelings of sadness, fatigue, restlessness, and a lack of enjoyment in things that you just can't move beyond. It can get in the way of basic tasks (eating, sleeping, getting out of bed), or sometimes you can get to the things you need to, but just don't "feel like yourself". Depression is not a sign of weakness, and seeking help is a sign of strength. The worthlessness, helplessness, hopelessness, and sometimes thoughts of ending your life, can all be helped with treatment. We can work together on understanding your depression, making small changes, and finding ways to help you move forward in your life. Take the next step and schedule a consultation to get started

Most depressed clients feel trapped by the circumstances that life has presented them. By introducing some elegantly simple tools, you will discover that there are openings (physically and energetically) that can dissolve frustrating anxiety/depression. Importantly, you become aware of perceptions and experiences not previously available to you. The tools/exercises that we use in session experientially shift us out of our everyday minds - This allows us access to another intelligence within a naturopathic pathway supported by our bodies, our hearts and nature.

Psychologist

When sadness becomes depression, ability to function and cope in day to day life becomes difficult. Through empathy and compassion in my work with people coping with depression I first endeavor to understand the current feelings presented. I examine early relationships and experiences that may continue to have an effect on present day mood. I also work with people to strategize ways to cope with sad moods when they occur and change lifestyle patterns and midsets in order to increase feelings of hope and joy.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapist

Have you ever had a day where you woke up and noticed that you just felt ‘off’ or down? Everyone experiences times in their life where they may feel more down. This is completely normal and expected. It can be caused from circumstances (e.g. stress at work, unemployment, death). Depression is different than just feeling down. Depression can look different on each individual person but our goal is to help you define what life would look like if you weren't feeling depressed and set goals to get you there. We work on changing the way we see and perceive the world and change our behaviors, to ultimately change how we feel.
